DIVERSITY, EQUITY, & INCLUSION
Through consultations, Leadership Montgomery can provide an expert assessment of your DEI initiatives with evidence-based approaches and cultivate specialized trainings to help evaluate workplace impact, develop goals, and strengthen DEI integration.
Expert Assessments. Expert Results.
Once treated as a human resources function to ensure compliance with federal statutes, the norm is now for DEI to be embedded in all aspects of businesses in response to rapidly changing demographics, deepening cross-cultural collaboration, and the need to understand and eradicate historical barriers that have hampered some employee productivity and stymied their path to career advancement. These barriers have included race, ethnicity, gender, religion, places of origin, and similar characteristics. Rather than relying on the personal choices or preferences of business owners and their managers, the need is for assessments and specialized training rooted in evidence-based approaches. These tactics help employers identify and dismantle barriers within their organizations and help them build cultures that are respectful, equitable, and productive. LM focuses on racial equity, social inclusion, cultural competence, and organizational culture. Specific services relative to these topics are offered as follows:
